Fans of superstar Vijay surrounded by him during the shot of his upcoming film which is tentatively titled Thalapathy 62. Vijay was seen sporting a casual attire and a little unusual beard, like the one he has not kept before. He seems to be in a very good shape which defines his character in the film. Makers of Thalapathy 62 are gearing up with the shooting of the film real quick because apparently they will be releasing the film on Diwali and might clash with Thala Ajith’s Viswasam.
Thalapathy 62 is directed by AR Murugadoss who has previously made two films with Vijay by the name of Kaththi and Thuppaki. Both these films were superhits and played a very important role in Vijay’s stardom, as one can see now. Vijay’s 2017 film Mersal was the highest grossing Tamil film of last year and has established his pan India stardom like never before. Murugadoss’s last film was a Telugu-Tamil bilingual with superstar Mahesh Babu by the name of Spyder which absolutely tanked on the box officein a major way as it was the stand biggest Telugu film after Baabubali franchise.
Murugadoss’s previous one before Spyder was a Hindi film called Akira starring Sonakshi Sinha and Anurag Kashyap in the lead roles and it turned out to be a major disaster on the box office moreover critics declined the film as well. Murugadoss is looking to get back in the game with this Vijay starrer as he has not delivered the box office success he is known for a while now. Speculations are that Thalapathy 62 could in fact with Thuppaki 2 but makers of the film have not come out with any declaration on this front. Vijay has recently concluded an action schedule in Kolkata with thrilling car chases while fans await the teaser of his upcoming film with the announcement of original title.
